The City of Raleigh, Citrix, and Bewegen Technologies, Inc. are proud to partner to bring bikeshare to our rapidly growing downtown, with an expected launch of late summer. Citrix Cycle will be a public, self-serve bicycle rental system for short trips, comprising 300 bikes across 30 stations. Half of the fleet will be equipped with electric-assist motors that will provide riders with an extra boost when pedaling.

Preliminary Station Locations

Bikeshare stations will be located in downtown Raleigh, in southeast Raleigh, along Hillsborough Street, and at the North Carolina Museum of Art. This map shows the preliminary station locations for Phase 1 of Raleigh’s bikeshare system, roughly based on the station location map in the Raleigh Bikeshare Implementation Plan (December 2014). These locations will undergo further refinement in early 2018.

Project History

In June 2014, BikeRaleigh completed the Bikeshare Feasibility Study. Based on public feedback and an analysis of Raleigh’s demographics, transit service, and bicycle network, the study concluded that bikeshare would be successful in the Raleigh.

In December of 2014, the subsequent Implementation Plan was completed and recommended two phases for implementation. Phase 1 comprises 300 bikes and 30 stations in downtown Raleigh, southeast Raleigh, North Carolina State University (NCSU), and the North Carolina Museum of Art. Phase 2 would increase the fleet by 200 bikes and add 20 stations, expanding the system footprint to include the NCSU’s Centennial Campus and the Five Points area.

To implement Phase I, City staff selected Bewegen Technologies, Inc., through a Request for Proposals process which included in-person interviews and public bikeshare demonstrations with three different vendors. On June 6, 2017, City Council authorized contract negotiations with Bewegen to implement, operate, and maintain the proposed 300-bike, 30-station bikeshare system. City Council approved the contract on November 21, 2017.

On May 23, 2018, Citrix announced itself as the title sponsor for the bikeshare program, officially changing the program name to Citrix Cycle. The program is scheduled to launch late summer/early fall of 2018.


Citrix Cycle passes will be available by year, month, or by the trip.  


  • One-way trips: $2
  • Day pass (24 hours): $6
  • Monthly memberships: $20
  • Annual memberships: $85


Citrix Cycle and the City of Raleigh believe the bikeshare program should be affordable and accessible for everyone. The program will offer discounts for students at annual rate of $65 and an Access Pass for qualifying residents at an annual rate of $10.

All memberships include unlimited 45-minute rides. This means you can ride as many times per day as you wish and the first 45 minutes of each ride are included. Rides longer than 45 minutes are subject to extended use charges ($2 per 30 minutes). Redocking a Citrix Cycle bike will reset the 45 minute ride time.
